Claudette Chartrand has successfully completed The CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist) program. To promote this outlook, the National Association of Homebuilders has created a designation for Certified Aging in Place Specialists, trained in designing and modifying residences for an aging population. The popular term for this is UNIVERSAL DESIGN.
Claudette has designed a number of remodels for seniors who have lived in their homes for years and want to remain active and engaged in their own neighborhoods.
Lighting brings out the true beauty of the completed home or office. Textures and colors come to life with lighting, creating areas of interest in a room. The ability to change the mood of a room dramatically with the touch of a switch can be achieved by one who has worked with lighting design for twenty years.
Instituting a close working relationship with the art world has allowed Claudette Chartrand to become a noted art connoisseur. She brings this ability to blend art, antiques and fine furnishings that meld into a beautiful room.
“The most stunning window treatments come from our custom workrooms, creating elegant backgrounds for our client's carefully selected furnishings.” Combining a knowledge of textiles and color, Claudette's custom drapery workrooms offer a wide range of window treatments to complement traditional or contemporary styles.
